Objects in Motion

Price: $29.95

Format : DVD
Acceleration and deceleration are very important concepts in relation to motion, as is the force of gravity.

A highway engineer explains how highways are designed with the rate of incline taken into account, experiments with reaction times are gauged, and a professional parachutist explains how the free-falling motion feels on a dive, and how important it is to understand exactly when to open the parachute.

This episode challenges students to:
• Understand the relationship between height and time for a falling object.
• Determine what angles would launch an object the greatest distance vertically and horizontally.
• Determine what happens to the average velocity of a falling object.
